Julius Caesar 2012
150 mins United Kingdom Director. Gregory Doran
Gregory Doran's innovative Shakespeare interpretation transplants the action to post-independence Africa. With echoes of the recent overthrow of dictators during the 'Arab Spring', the production explores the implications of political assassination and the unpredictability of its aftermath.
Shot on location and also in the RSC's theatre at Stratford-upon-Avon, Julius Caesar is a sumptuous adaptation featuring the original cast of a startling and arresting production. Actors include Paterson Joseph as Brutus, Jeffery Kissoon as Caesar, Cyril Nri as Cassius, and Ray Fearon as Mark Antony.
